Measuring over 2,000 square feet, this uniquely shaped cabin amps up lakeside living in Minnesota.
In St. Louis County, a 2,144-square-foot abode has been beautifully designed by Minnesota–based Salmela Architects to replace an old, non-insulated cabin that once existed on the site. Located on a wooded plot that slopes down toward Lake Vermilion, the three-level cabin know as Hyytinen comprises of two rectilinear volumes, which have been stacked perpendicular to each other to form an L-shaped floor plan.
The cabin’s façade has been crafted from Western Red Cedar and coated in a pine, tar-like treatment to give the exterior its rich, dark gray color. A “splash base” siding has also been installed underneath the wood-board cladding to ensure a more durable structure.
